REVIEWS:


"Moody, poignant and rich in humour ... Christopher suggests that we are all made of stories. In a city like Chicago, one might believe that, and this immersive film will take you there. You don’t need to be a fan of Gifford’s work to enjoy it, but you’ll be ready to hunt that down when you leave." EyeForFilm.co.uk [Jennie Kermode]


"Impressionistic and slippery ... Director Rob Christopher is drawn to the visual drama of Kodachrome nightscapes, saturated in turquoise shadows and tantalizing, forbidden scarlets. Elsewhere, the footage takes on an almost abstract quality: the editing, by Marianna Milhorat, is sensual and expressive. Adding to the grungy, down-at-heel glamour of the visuals is a terrific jazz score, heavy on sleazy brass and vibraphone. Roy’s World also employs animated segments, to gorgeous effect." Screen International [Wendy Ide]


"A wonderful, unique and intriguing feature that oozes nostalgia and the Chicago vibe." OC Movies [Liselotte Vanophem]


"[Jason Adasiewicz's] music evokes the skyscrapers, harsh winters, buzzing nightclubs and intimate family moments that we see onscreen, transporting the audience to Chicago during this time period and the authenticity gives the film an aura of realism." The Wee Review [Steven Fraser]
